Julien: Pacioretty hit resembled Cooke hit
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Tuesday's practice that Habs forward Max Pacioretty's hit on Penguins defenseman Kris Letang resembled Matt Cooke's hit on Marc Savard in March of 2010.

Pacioretty was suspended for three games Monday for the hit in which he targeted the head of Letang.

"To me, it resembled a little bit the hit that Savard took from Cooke a few years ago," Julien said when asked about the play. "It was almost identical, but that's the league's decision to make." 

Savard is not playing this season due to post-concussion syndrome. He played in only 25 games last season before suffering his most recent concussion.

Pacioretty might be known best for the shove into a stanchion he took last season from Bruins captain Zdeno Chara. While there was a criminal investigation on the play, Chara was not suspended. 

"[It] certainly doesn't have any links to what happened...

Report: Orioles interested in Hale

According to a report in the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles would like to hire DeMarlo Hale as the club's third-base coach.

Hale has been the bench coach for the Red Sox the last two seasons and was the third-base coach from 2006-09. Hale has a history with Orioles manager Buck Showalter, having served as first base coach and outfield instructor with Showalter and the Rangers in 2003 and 2004. 

Hale -- currently under contract to the Red Sox -- interviewed for the Cubs managerial position earlier in November and was reportedly a finalist for the Blue Jays' managerial job last offseason, a position that went to John Farrell.

Chass: Valentine would be 'big mistake'

Hall of Fame sportswriter Murray Chass was a guest of the Dennis and Callahan show on Tuesday. On Monday, Chass wrote a column that was critical of Bobby Valentine, who is believed to be one of two finalists for the Red Sox vacant managerial position. Chass -- who covered Valentine while writing for the New York Times -- was asked what hiring Valentine might mean for the Sox organization.

"His history is such that he would create more problems than he would solve," said Chass. "As a manager, he has never finished first with a team. He's won two wild cards, won a playoff with the Mets, but he never finished in first place. And there's only one day in his career where his team has been in first place in September. That came in 2000 -- September 1. If he's so good, if he's so brilliant, if his tactics and strategy is so good, why hasn't he fared better managing a team?"

Valentine's ego and...
